A German entertainment group specializing in middle age music, whom I have been fortunate enough to see two years in a row at Medeltidsveckan in Visby.
They consist of Berit Ruehl, educated dancer and self-taught musician; Michael Gartner (from USA), musician and musicologist; Claus-Conrad Zieme, veteran musician; and Stefan Plonske, mime, actor and self-taught musician.
They are perhaps most famous for their incredible live performances at different festivals the world over, where they simply go to a square, start playing, and after 30 minutes, have an audience of several houndred people. I have yet to see or hear of a person who walks away without a smile from their show. Their instruments include: bagpipes, flutes, harps, drums as well as some other instruments from that time.
So far, they have released two Celestial Devices (CDs), which I find the second to be most enjoyable. Their official homepage is www.wolgemut.com
